RESPONSIBLE CONDUCT OF RESEARCH FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
Texas A&M University is committed to supporting responsible and ethical conduct of research and scholarship among its faculty, staff, and students. As such, the University follows federal, state, and university guidelines regarding Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). A campus-wide environment pertaining to responsible conduct of research requires researchers to have the knowledge, skills, and tools to allow them to be responsible for their research conduct.
In August 2020 University SAP 15.99.99.M0.04 (https://rules-saps.tamu.edu/PDFs/15.99.99.M0.04.pdf) went into effect. The requirements outlined apply to any graduate student, postdoctoral researcher, or undergraduate student participating in research funded internally or externally. The specific requirements will depend on the type of student and the type of funding supporting the research.
